Our Programs

Our programs allow AshaKiran the ability to serve culturally diverse and underserved survivors through events, trainings, and education, all while supporting other community organizations. 

Community Awareness Program

The goal of the Community Awareness Program is to serve the need to prevent misunderstandings and improve communications and compliance between community organizations, service providers, and community agencies by assisting them in navigating and understanding the cultural differences in clients they may encounter.  This education is designed to help these entities create and implement appropriate support practices to avoid re-traumatizing the clients they serve and building trust in the communities in which they are located.

Many organizations offer little more than etiquette training, while failing to address deeper issues that impact communications. The commitment to improving internal and external practices must become a part of the organization’s culture in order to become effective. 


Language Access Program

This program helps partner victim service providers support clients by making qualified interpreters and translators available to serve the needs of the survivors they are supporting. 


Volunteer Program

Through volunteerism AshaKiran is able to extend the services we offer to the survivors we serve.  Our Volunteer Program is designed to create opportunities for those in the community that share the mission and vision of the organization.

New Alabamians Program

AshaKiran is excited to launch the New Alabamians Program (NAP) - a one hour presentation directly to the community to improve knowledge on how to access emergency services.  The NAP includes tips and insight provided from first responders valuable feedback as well as practical information on emergency rooms, non-emergency services and schools. This is especially important to members of our communities who are limited English proficient (LEP) or are not familiar with how to access crisis services (or even know that 911 can switch you over to an operator who speaks your language). 


The NAP also includes a pocket-sized guide with vital information that can easily fit in the palm of your hand, into your wallet or even in a cell phone case. Thanks to our community partners, the NAP pocket-sized guide has been translated into 5 languages: Arabic, Chinese/Mandarin, Korean, Spanish/Mexican and Vietnamese with more languages on the way!
